Travel to Aruba

Post by Smash05 » Tue Oct 02, 2018 9:37 am

I'm trying to put a kit together for my wife and I for a week long trip to Aruba. Since it is a trip to a foreign country, I am treating this a bit differently than some of our other trips. Kit will be very basic, but supplemented with snacks and basic food items when we arrive. I will say this firmly, I do not expect an issue, but I am unwilling to trade away some basic preparations just because it is a foreign destination. I have had some difficulty determining the specific laws on things like knives, so I have defaulted to a Spyderco SpyDK slipit, a SAK, and perhaps an inexpensive dive knife (or maybe a mora) as I am told fixed knives other than a dive knife may be a no-no. Truth be told we will probably go snorkelling, and the dive knife would probably come with me on that excursion but would otherwise be at the hotel. I am told that dive knives are not looked at as odd on the island - so that is why the default there. Any suggestions for the kit? What am I definately allowed, what is a problem, etc. I am building around one of my Best Glide kits, and a basic trauma/first aid kit. Thoughts?
